TV struck by lightning

My Sharp 32C231 was struck by lightning. There was no burning smell.
There is no response what-so-ever when the power button is pressed. I was in another room when it happened, so I do not know for sure if there was a sound or not.
Fixable...or trash?

Looks like the flyback (high voltage transformer and probably the majority of the power board is kaput. It would be cheaper and probably worth your while to invest in a new TV rather than try to fix this one..

Sony trinitron color tv ,model no.kv-G14Q2,70W,SER NO. 2266941.was struck by lightenning and now can not power or ever do any other operation. what can i do to bring it back to normal.


If your set was struck by lightening then God Help! you must be lucky.
A first hand look into the set is important to see the extend of the damage and if you see burned boards then it will be bettter to go for a full replacementt of the board.Check cost and decide.
However if you are lucky you can have basic faults in the power section, fuse, surge protector, rectifier, capacitor or the Sm driver.
If fault in the tuner side and there is damage there is no hope.

2007 Sony Trinitron WEGA will not turn on (no nioses, nothing)


right if it has been struck by lightning then a wide array of components will be shorted in the powersupply from diodes to capacitors, resistors and driver IC's , the fuse and Mains Transformer and all will need to be tested individualy but if they look black and charred then they need to be replaced.

Sharp 32c231 volume too low


If you are using a cable box with this set, the problem may be in the box settings.
Try this:
open the settings menu on the box . You may have to select"more settings" or something like that title to find the audio selections.
Under the audio, you will find recording and viewing volume settings. put these to maximum and save.
Your volume should now be more than adequate.

TV was struck by lightning


If it was struck by lightning, the surge would completely fry the insides of your TV. Your TV probably won't work anymore and you may have to consider replacing it. Some TVs have accident warranties so something like this could be protected, but if not, you will have to purchase a new one.
